Prof. Kim chosen for Mayor Garcetti's Police Commission
Professor Kathleen Kim was chosen by Mayor Garcetti, and now has been approved by the Los Angeles City Council for Board of Police Commissioners in Los Angeles County.
Excerpt from the Los Angeles Times article, "L.A. council OK's Garcetti's nominees for police commission":
The five-member Police Commission sets the LAPD's policies, approves its $1-billion annual budget and oversees its operations. One of its most important tasks is determining whether officer-involved shootings and other serious uses of force were appropriate.
In addition to Figueroa-Villa, the council confirmed Steve Soboroff, a former chairman of Playa Capital, the master developer of Playa Vista on the Westside; Loyola Law School professor Kathleen Kim, who specializes in human trafficking and immigrants rights; and Paula Madison, chief executive of the Los Angeles Sparks, a women's basketball team.
